Love Your Garden is the first Risograph Book Bad Student has published after recovering from Typhoon Ulysses. The typhoon flooded their entire studio; destroying their Riso machine, printing equipment, papers, and print archives. This book is part of their journey to rebuild their studio; to reclaim what was lost and to appreciate what remained.
Love Your Garden is written by Indya Gokita and illustrated by Pau Tiu.
